Yesterday eve me and my bump took a break from all Christmas turmoil, preparations and overloaded mailboxes, and jumped into an all black outfit, a pair of Jimmy Choo’s, and my new gifted, gorgeously studded Valentino clutch (it’s actually an Ipad bag), and we all had a fab night out on town, heavily needed!
Givenchy’s Spring 2013 campaign is one of the most beautiful and interesting I’ve seen in a while, Riccardo Tisci’s muse, Mariacarla Boscono, poses with her own baby daughter and radiates vulnerability, femininity and strength all in one go. Styling by Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Mert & Marcus.
Nail polish favourites of mine right now are Essie’s nr.487 Berry Hard and Chanel’s old classic nr.18 Rouge Noir, both are perfect shades of deep burgundy with brown undertones and quite similar, but Essie’s slightly lighter which I don’t mind, also stay’s like a rock and half the price of Chanel.
There are so many temptations out there right now, resort collections hitting stores and great winter sales ongoing. My “dilemma” is if I strike I probably won’t fit into it anyway until the season is over, so I’ve chosen to close my eyes (man it’s hard!) and focus on the beautiful spring that will come eventually. With a few exceptions though, like this currency printed shirt from Acne’s resort that I’ve wanted since I first had a look on this collection, and even if it’s a little tight over my bump right now at least I can wear it come spring.
Though I love being all wrapped up in coats in the winter I wouldn’t mind adding a leather shearling jacket to my wardrobe, preferable in a lighter brown or tan colour, perhaps something to look for and hopefully stumble across during the sales (yeah!).
Happy Friday everyone out there!
‘To me style has little to do with trends, but rather a timeless form of expression’
As you may have picked up by now is that I’m a huge fan of the Italian heritage brand Tod’s, hence needless to say it’s really a true honour both representing the brand and be featured on their website. If you go on Tod’s.com you’ll find an interview with me right now, thank you so much Tod’s!
Today I popped by Vassilisa’s showroom and had a closer inspection on Nadja Solovieva’s SS13 collection, and gosh does it include some amazing printed silk and cashmere scarves that I wouldn’t mind have hanging around my neck come spring. I couldn’t leave empty handed and brought something incredible soft and luxurious along home with me, yeah!
I know I’ve said it before but it’s worth repeating, cause I’m sure there are many late birds like myself out there. It took me like forever to get on instagram, such a brilliant way to catch up when there’s little time or you’re out of words. If you wanna follow me you’ll find me on @hedvigso.
I love super soft slogan jumpers that are perfect to cool-down something “too-pretty” or simply throw on with a pair of jeans with heels or relaxed boots. A favourite in my wardrobe is Brian Lichtenberg’s Homies above, but I wouldn’t mind adding any of these others to my little slogan collection as well.
Happy Monday morning and I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
I spent mine doing lots of 1’sts in my life, finding myself of the top floors of department stores (babystuff) instead of enjoying the “secret” sales on the floors below was definitely a 1’st one. I probably looked liked a big question mark when the helpful staff loaded my arms with “necessary” gadgets I never heard of, or even occurred to me was needed. Well, now it’s all done in one go and the rest of shopping time available in December will be devoted to Christmas gifts and perhaps a few treats for myself, just to release some of the pressure for Santa…..
What’s not a 1’st one is my forever combo of wooly dresses and coats, but that just happens to be my favourite right now. Wool dress and scarf from Cos, coat and boots by Isabel Marant, tights by Wolford, bag by Proenza Schouler, gold bracelet by Monica Vinader and rings by De Beers.
